New York Magazine’s Feature On Terry Richardson Is Just As Depressing As Expected

New York* magazine’s feature on Terry Richardson is here and it paints an even more disturbing picture of the creepy photographer.

I knew about the numerous sexual abuse accusations against him, but nothing about the extent to which Richardson is a seriously disturbed person. New York recounts how Richardson used to hear voice…

New York magazine is allegedly working on a cover story that portrays celebrity photographer Terry Richardson sympathetically against claims from young models that he has sexually assaulted and coerced them, according to a source who spoke to Jezebel.

10 Revelations From Joe Jonas’s New York Magazine Confessional

In fairness, practically every word of Joe Jonas’s first-person piece in New York magazine is a revelation to me, as I have basically gone out of my way not to know anything about the Jonas Brothers other than Nick is the hottest one. But I have had some assumptions about the JoBros in general based on what little…

The Soapbox: Please, Can “Hipster Sexism” Not Be A Thing?

I have very mixed feelings about a piece on NYMag.com’s blog about “hipster sexism.” The authors Alissa Quart and Lauren Sandler author Alissa Quart described “hipster sexism” as:
Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox … ads, photographs, television shows, films, and T-shirts, which…

The Church Of Kim Kardashian: New York Magazine Wades Deep In Shallow Water

The kingdom of Kim Kardashian has been denounced more frequently and more publicly than any other celebrity name in recent history. There’s something about this family — their wholly public lives played out on screen like a strange, awkwardly scripted melodrama? Their unrepentant groveling for fame and media attention? The sex tape reportedly executed to…

Inspiring Quotes From New York Mag’s Fiona Apple Interview

Confession: Last night, I read the New York magazine piece, “I Just Want to Feel Everything’: Hiding Out With Fiona Apple Musical Hermit,” not once, but three times. I think it was one of the best music interviews I’ve read in a long time. I’ve always been a Fiona Apple fan. Tidal came out my first year…

Who do you think knows more about pop culture — Chevy Chase or Joel McHale? Find out by watching this special pop culture quiz, in which two teams made up of the cast of “Community” attempt to answer rather difficult pop culture questions.

New York Magazine Acknowledges The Feminist Blogosphere

Growing up in the suburban Northeast, I didn’t fit in. At my large, mostly-white, upper-middle-class high school, I wasn’t the funniest, the smartest, the most charming, or the prettiest: therefore, I didn’t really exist. Other kids cared about their Abercrombie & Fitch polos, what went down at the last Dave Matthews Band concert, and the…

10 Suggested Names For Brad Pitt’s New Hairdo

The lovely Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are on the latest cover of New York magazine, talking about their movie “Moneyball” that opens on September 23rd. Brad looked kinda sexy on the cover—sort of a reversion to his “Legends of the Fall” self. However, inside, I was deeply troubled with this image. What the heck…

Can The Sex Be Hotter If You’re About To Break Up?

New York magazine’s “Sex Diaries” issue is on stands now and it’s a fairly entertaining read. The feature spotlights a number of different New Yorkers who have shared the details of their sex life over a period of days. The one that interested me the most was written by a 29-year-old expat living in Cabo…

But Can You Walk In Them?

Talk about a test-drive. Recent fashion seasons have seen some of the highest heels on record, from Nina Ricci’s heel-less high-heels to Rodarte’s towering Frankenstein boots. They may be beautiful, but can real women walk to work in the seven-inch stilettos that sent some supermodels spilling on the runways? The ladies at New York’…

Stephen Colbert Spanks Philip Weiss

There are so many reasons to love Stephen Colbert, and today’s reason is that he totally made Philip Weiss his bitch. Weiss is the writer behind that hateful New York story, “The Affairs Of Married Men”, which enraged me while I was on vacation. Colbert calls Weiss out, asking, “Isn’t there any chance…

If You Never Promise To Be Monogamous, You’ll Never HAVE To Cheat

I’m on vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina this week and that’s why I am really pissed at New York magazine for making their cover story in the newest issue be about something as enraging to me as men who cheat. Particularly men who cheat and BOO HOO don’t we feel sorry for…

Frisky Quote Of The Day: Sarah Jessica Parker

“She would probably long for that earlier type of heartbreak versus what she experiences this time around. The disappointment and the loss is so painful because they’re grown-ups now, and it just changes, as we all know.” — Sarah Jessica Parker, on her Sex And The City: The Movie character, Carrie, to New York magazine.

What Clay Is Aiken To Tell You

Clay Aiken is back at it, answering questions about his sexuality — or a lack thereof, as he’s claiming now. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Clay said he is asexual because he is “just too busy for a relationship” since his career is what he likes to do. Yeah, did I mentio…

Falling In Love On The A Train

The whole Patrick Moberg, nygirlofmydreams.com thing really got our hopes up about the possibility of meeting someone on public transportation.
